Good Evening Everyone,

I am new to this site but not to the fight.

Hopefully I am doing this right and not violating all rules.

Two questions.

1. What does it take to change the MSP rules for allowing CCW in Maryland?

2. Since this country is changing greatly with law enforcement becoming a target. Use this as leverage with Annapolis. As ex law enforcement I would relish someone coming to my aid from a law abiding CCW. At this point in time I believe the current police would relish it as well.

I'm sure I am preaching to the choir, I would much rather go out fighting and helping law enforcement versus sitting there watching someone getting murdered.

Thanks and glad to be part of the fight,

With regards to #1 there are several things, first, the Governor can advise the Secretary of State police to stop issuing restrictions on permits that are issued, as well as to stop requiring the proof of the nee for personal protection. That is the simplest thing. The other is a complete rewrite of the statute by the general assembly an thus a complete rewriting of the law.

With regards to #2, I won't discuss in public what our plans are on how we approach legislation in the 2017 legislative session, but you do make a good point for the general public, to use the current event, to help that initial prove personal testimony during the committee hearings on any bills this coming session.

Wear and Carry Permit lawsuit

Maryland Shall Issue (MSI) applauds the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) announcement of its support of a new challenge against the State of Maryland's unfair and discriminatory wear and carry permit system in federal district court.  The case name is Malpasso v. Pallozzi, No. 18-1064 (D. MD).  The Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association, which is the NRA's Maryland state organization, is also a named plaintiff. The lawsuit candidly acknowledges that the relief sought "is contrary to Woollard v. Gallagher, 712 F.3d 865 (4th Cir. 2013), but alleges that the Fourth Circuit's decision in Woollard was "wrongly decided" for the "reasons explained in Wrenn v. District of Columbia, 864 F.3d 650 (D.C. Cir. 2017), and that the purpose of the suit is "to seek to have Woollard overturned."  The suit is thus similar to complaints filed by the same counsel in New York (New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc. v. Beach, No. 18-134 (N.D.N.Y.)), and in New Jersey (Rogers v. Grewal, No. 18-1544 (D.N.J.)) in which existing adverse Second Circuit and Third Circuit precedent is challenged in the same way. These suits all take advantage of the "circuit split" created by the D.C. Circuit's decision in Wrenn. The resolution of such circuit splits is often the reason that cases are reviewed in the Supreme Court.

Medical Marijuana and Guns

With the recent changes in Maryland law concerning medical marijuana, see MD Code, Health - General, § 13-3304 et seq., and the push to legalize the use of marijuana in Maryland, a recurring issue is how such marijuana use would affect your Second Amendment rights.  The short answer is that it may well act to abrogate those rights by (1) barring a FFL from selling a firearm to such a user and (2), by making such a user a prohibited person under federal law.
